  8. motorztv Says:

    @BlackShadowBM Thanks!

  9. integraz32lover Says:

    @motorztv OK but isnt working on a car alot funner

  10. motorztv Says:

    @americansmark I think Gladiator GarageWorks is giving away one through some other site (I can’t remember which one off-hand)

  11. motorztv Says:

    @integraz32lover LOL! It was just my camera guy and I that day. I built the other 2 by myself prior to that one in the episode so it’s no big deal…

  12. integraz32lover Says:

    Have you ever gotten mad during an episode…you should sometime….it would be funny

  13. motorztv Says:

    @integraz32lover It was much louder in person than in the video LOL

  14. motorztv Says:

    @integraz32lover There are some things I shouldn’t be doing on my own… :)

  15. integraz32lover Says:

    @motorztv I can see that

  16. integraz32lover Says:

    @motorztv You mean every thing

  17. motorztv Says:

    @integraz32lover We all have our moments I guess, but for the most part No–we have so much fun filming this show we usually have to stop laughing and get serious before a take.

  18. integraz32lover Says:

    @motorztv But if you do get mad one day FILM IT PLEASE

  19. chunkyfunkymonkey28 Says:

    The sears guy for the commercials looks like he’s about to shit himself he’s so nervous

  20. motorztv Says:

    @chunkyfunkymonkey28 Oh I think Nate did an excellent job with that. He’s clearly a bit green on video but he nailed all those bullet points perfectly!

  21. renthal971 Says:

    Good episode. I need to check my ball size.

  22. integraz32lover Says:

    When you said get over buddy…you should have said GET YOUR ASS OVER HERE BITCH!!!!!!

  28. motorztv Says:

    @Kirbynessness Thank you kindly! Subscribe to the Blue Tool Crew Facebook page or Twitter as they have sales and deals all the time!

  31. VitoRocks03 Says:

  32. keyandnut Says:

  33. motorztv Says:

    @keyandnut 3 away!

  34. motorztv Says:

    @crawfdady It helps to make filming go faster when we have everything… :)

  35. motorztv Says:

    @VitoRocks03 I didn’t :) More on the job training with smart people. Have a great time!

  36. bsl3216 Says:

    Those those tools are sweet that’s why I never go to sears because I would end up walking out with to much of that stuff and Chris you forgot the zoot!

  37. motorztv Says:

    @bsl3216 I know the feeling… it’s like walking into a candy store every time I walk into the tools section. I didn’t forget the zoot… it’s just no longer a part of the show.

  38. sergh8605 Says:

    i envy you guys

  39. GenuineCriminal Says:

    @motorztv Hey do you know anything about wyotech? have you heard anything?

  40. motorztv Says:

    @GenuineCriminal I’ve heard some good things about it, but I don’t have any personal experiences to share sorry!

  41. 003Mexicano Says:

    hey chris i really like your show, i also saw that your a crafstman guy just like me but what do you think about snap on tools? have you ever used them? will you ever use them? are they really that much better than crafstman tools? because my friend recently bought some snap on ratchets and he keeps saying that craftsman is nothing compared to snap on. he says that just because snap on makes ratchets with swivel heads.

  42. andrestnt Says:

    WOW awesome tools, but man are they expensive. looks like you have 10k worth of tools.

  43. 67mustangreg Says:

    @003Mexicano ….snap on is better, ask the pros. when you really, need a quality tool, snap on will win everytime

  44. 67mustangreg Says:

    I agree about the honda. not that theres anythign wrong with a ford… but a B series would be cool to see worked on.

  45. RoniisH Says:

    I’ve almost given up hope on Motorz, you post a video like once a year.

  46. motorztv Says:

    @RoniisH In 2010 I produced 20+ videos. Keep in mind that when it comes to editing and distribution I’m a one-man show. Also see the previous video “Motorz TV February 2011 Update”. Thanks for watching! -Chris

  47. mariokart209 Says:

    Yes Im getting my Spark Plugs, Luis Rodriguez, I love E3.

  48. butty41 Says:

    @003Mexicano well i have some input. snap on can be VERY expensive. but my dad is a mechanic and he does buy snap on, mainly becuase they are tough well designed and have a lifetime warrenty, hes just had a plastic mallet replaced, free of charge and it was also about 10 years old. so they are a company that you pay for what you get. some times though u dont need the most top quality stuff, so think if it siuts your needs

  49. dilpickle218 Says:

    Hey Chris did you switch the F-150’s wheels to DC-2’s or is that from the Jeep JK in the after shot?

  50. dilpickle218 Says:

    Hey Chris did you switch the F-150’s wheels to DC-2’s or is that from the Jeep JK in the after shot?

  51. motorztv Says:

    @003Mexicano I have no personal experience with Snap-On tools, but I can tell you that there’s been many occasions when we’ve been filming on the weekend and we needed a tool–a Sears store was accessible and we got our tool quickly. Due to my relationship with the Sears Blue Tool Crew, you won’t be seeing anything on my show that’s not sold at Sears.

  52. motorztv Says:

    @dilpickle218 I loved them on the JK so I got them for my F-150 as well :)

  53. motorztv Says:

    @mariokart209 Congrats! I’ll send you an email soon…

  54. AnythingWeThinkOf Says:

    “they give you all the tools you need, even the allen” hahaha and I’m hoping to attend UTI next year :D I’m excited to get in the car game

  55. reallunacy Says:

    Congratulations on having such a great set up. Question though, is that compressor you have a two stage that can be used for painting? Also, I’m digging that rotor and caliper clock you have back there.

  56. motorztv Says:

    @reallunacy Thanks! It isn’t, but you can learn more about the Craftsman Professional 27 gal air compressor by going to sears(dot)com/tools and searching for p/n 00916474000

  57. motorztv Says:

    @AnythingWeThinkOf Good luck at UTI! Please let me know how it goes…

  58. 02fastwj Says:

    i love the last clip in the bloopers “big guy in a little shirt!” classic!

    @motorztv nice bre

  60. VitoRocks03 Says:

    @motorztv nice bre

  61. asyoulikeitvideos Says:

    My garage is suddenly jealous!

  62. oneoleqt Says:

    are craftsman rachets covered under the lifetime replacement warranty

  63. motorztv Says:

    @oneoleqt Yes, in fact I don’t know of a Craftsman tool that isn’t.

  64. MeanStang08 Says:

    awesome show, i’m SOOOO envious of all those nice tools.. garage looks great Chris!

  65. MeanStang08 Says:

    is that a squirrel? lol

  66. motorztv Says:

    @MeanStang08 It’s Clay “Bar” the squirrel

  67. itsdaveperdue Says:

    @motorztv From what I understand their torque wrenches aren’t covered (their considered measuring instruments)…speaking of which I need to buy a torque wrench!

  68. thejazz1510 Says:

    looks great

  69. thejazz1510 Says:

  70. thejazz1510 Says:

    what tool set is that one on the partz section?

  71. mike081283 Says:

    i don’t have know any 1 named buddy but i have a friend named matt will that work

  72. mike081283 Says:

    i don’t have know any 1 named buddy but i have a friend named matt will that work

  73. motorztv Says:

    @mike081283 That will do then :)

  74. MoonlightAutoRepair Says:

    @motorztv I was also told that most of the tools are in sets only, so there was no way to get just single items anymore. its went from great service, to “sir, thats too many tools to warranty” (under 15 tools is too many?), to, sorry, you engraved them or sorry not avail. anymore, or we dont sell them single, sorry. can you talk to someone @ sears for me please! I watch every show you guys make, I am planning a garage renovation and like this episode. I am just skeptical now considering

  75. motorztv Says:

    @MoonlightAutoRepair Have you tried their customer service or Facebook page?

  76. suddnstar Says:

    That is the way a shop should be. Everything should be organized, so you can find whatever tool you are looking for when the need arises. Also I love how you all keep the tools nice and clean. It helps keep the boxes clean too, in some shops they don’t clean the tools so rust, grease and dirt are all up in the tool box. All you need is a lift and an alignment rack, but you’d probably need more space for those.

  77. suddnstar Says:

    Nah, you’d definetly need more space cause I don’t think your roof is high enough for an alignment rack or a lift. Also you’d be pretty crammed with them.

  78. motorztv Says:

    @suddnstar Thank you for watching, and the for the great feedback! Most of these tools were new at the time we filmed this episode, however we always clean them up after we use them so they are all still looking great!

  79. Jace Lippert Says:

    Love the show. Recently got a 2005 Mustang GT and I’ve been watching a lot of your episodes. I’ve been a mechanic for about 15 years and love the work. most of my hand tools are craftsman (started my career at a sears) but my air tools are snap on. Like you said, sometimes I need to replace a tool and Sears is handy when the parts truck isn’t. I’ve been trying to look up a set of E3 plugs, but my parts house desn’t carry them… any suggestions other than summit? I’ve got a set of chambered mufflers on now with a cai, programmer, a ram air hood, as well as some show-me stuff for this winter. Keep up the good work and I’ll send pics when I can :)

  80. djspray803 Says:

    Thats super awesome and all, but how much did all of those shelving units and toolboxes cost? probably around $3000 to $4000 for everything?

  81. ytregguy1 Says:

    I’ve done some work to the interior of my garage, check out the progress and maybe get an idea or two (?) Search: ‘Finished Garage with 2 Post MaxJax Lift’ on You Tube or Google to see my video

    Whats the Floor Made of?

  101. motorztv Says:

    The old floor is RaceDeck. The new flooring that you see in more recent episodes is called NORSK. Both types are available through Sears, although RaceDeck isn’t (a similar product is available from other manufacturers, however)

  141. Chris Black Says:

    Hey! I saw the coiler thing for your air compressor, is that attached to the compressor or to the wall? I have the same compressor and have been looking for an easy way to coil my hose!

  142. John Doe Says:

    Cabinets are junk, “diamond plate” AKA stamped sheet metal and 50 lb shelves, please plywood for both the financial and strength win.
